- And, the host who called upon all the ‘gay ancestors’, including Somizi
Out Perfect Wedding has served up episodes that had fans talking, the most recent one is definitely among the top 10.
The episode featured the love story of 26-year-old Simphiwe Khumalo from Mpumalanga and 43-year-old Riaan Bleedt from KwaZulu-Natal.
The two men met on social media and fell in love after Bleedt travelled to Witbank to meet his now hubby, Khumalo.
"One day I just decided to meet this guy. So, I drove all the way to Witbank and just then he grabbed my attention immediately. I knew there was more behind this person that I wanted to know," said Riaan.
The two hit it off and soon they were in a relationship. Briefly.co.za learned Khumalo’s family accepted his love for Bleedt, but it was different for his bae.
Bleedt’s family had an issue, not because he was in a relationship with a man, but because his boyfriend was a black man.
Their disapproval of the relationship went on to such an extent that they wanted nothing to do with the wedding, which was an emotional situation for the Bleedt who would have wanted the support of his loved ones.
As if the interracial gay couple thing was not enough, people were criticizing them for the 17-year-age gap as well.
In fact, it got so bad for the couple that they moved to Joburg to start a new life together.
Bleedt and Khumalo was engaged for just over a year, after the 43-year-old gathered the courage to pop the question in March last year.
And what about lobola? Khumalo said he wanted to pay lobola for Bleedt, but because white people don't often practice lobola, he got away with it.
Fans of Our Perfect Wedding could not wait for Bleedt and Khumalo’s episode to air, and it did not disappoint.
The couple looked stunning in all white with gold trimming and a small cape. And, they even had a pastor who was both bisexual and polygamous.
The religious leader brought both his partners and tweeps were shook.
However, the pastor managed to upset one of the grooms. During the ceremony, he would constantly refer to the husband and wife, and although Bleedt understood the alleged reason for this, Khumalo felt it was wrong since they’re both men.
"I wasn't happy. There is no wife here. We are men, so I was like okay.”
